  1. Oh, I agree, and no disrespect to Tiny. It's just fun to go back to earlier videos and see how his predictions hold up. And, to be fair, he is very upfront about the fact that if he bashes a card, he completely forgets about it and this has bit him more than once.
  2. Quite a few of the cards that Tiny Grimes declares to be "unplayable." If you listen to him, most of the card pool is "unplayable..."

    I feel ya, but it would be cool to use Force Misdirection in villain. Hero has some cool tricks, but they just don't compare to the overwhelming firepower of villains. Flavorful, yes, but fair? Not so much. But that is a whole other subject...

    Hey Kieransi, how are you playing Force Misdirection in a villain deck? It's Hero only, I believe.

    Force Speed

    I jumped all in on Destiny when I first read about it here on FFG. I got a box of Awakenings when I could, and I've been very happy with it ever since. My wife is very similar to yours in that she likes a simple game in which she can remember all the rules without me having to help her (if I help her or let her win, I'm cheating...). She was skeptical of the game at first, but I taught her how to play it, and she beats me all the time (without me "cheating"). And I still have yet to acquire a Force Speed, but I can honestly say that the legendaries in this game are definitely nice, but not 100% necessary to have fun with the game (I don't even have FN-2199, because I'm a TRAITOR!).

    FFG way of not play testing his games...

    Here's my two cents opinion. A good player will be able to play around this card. Resource denial is definitely a thing, and you can't look at a card in a vacuum. For every supposedly OP card, there is a counter, and that's why I love this game. And while the villains in this game have huge advantages, I have a feeling that this will not always be the case. We are nearly to Empire at War, and we have no idea what else is going to be coming down the pipeline. I recommend a chill pill.

    Blue spoiler article!

    Well, dear old daddy Jango was only rare, and he dominated the meta for the first set. Hopefully, if Boba is rare, he'll have a more lasting impact.

    Blue spoiler article!

    I thought I'd be playing the Emo Kids for some time. Now with Quinlan Vos pairing so perfectly with Asajj Ventress, I'm going to be really experimenting with a new mono blue. Vos is such an interesting Jedi, and I can't wait to see how those two do for me.

    Cad Bane Spoiler

    Weequay soldier sitting in the sarlaac : "Oh, so you fell in here too!" Boba Fett: "Fell in? Volunteered, more like! I was fighting like 80 Jedi, and I took out about 60 of 'em. Then the rest had me flanked, but I said 'No sir! I'm not given' you the pleasure!' and I jumped on in. But not before I left a little thermal detonator for them to chew on after I was gone!"

    How's Left? (Rogue group/Red Squadron)

    Si after getting into the game a few months ago, I started rereading the EU Rogue Squadron books, and I understand why ffg put Corran Horn in an E Wing, I just wish he had a T 65 card too. But other notable Rogues include Gavin Darklighter (Biggs' cousin), Bror Have, and Nawara Ven. And don't get me started on Aaron Allston's Wraith Squadron...

    What's Your Fluff-ification for...?

    Greedo isn't really Greedo (his body is still smoking in that kriffing cantina), it's really Jar Jar in a Greedo mask. Boba Fett doesn't just have two different voices, he has two different pilot cards. Corran doesn't mean to shoot twice in a row, the firing buttons just get jammed.

    What's the best delivery method for Advanced Proton Torps?

    I sure as Hoth hope that UPS and FEDEX aren't delivering an APT to me! What if it went off!?

    Brainstorming a new YT-1300

    I have to say I would totally buy another YT-1300 if it had Rey as a pilot, and while I think her pilot skill should be fairly low (to reflect her inexperience with the Falcon's controls), I think that ability works perfectly. The only thing I would add is that the model has to have the rectangular sensor dish that was presumably the replacement for the one that Lando lost in that RotJ Death Star run. And Chewie is nice, but I would sacrifice him as a pilot if it meant a Rey pilot. Finn with a gunner-type effect would be perfect.

    Deadeye and Lt Blount

    Thanks! I generally stay away from missiles/rockets/torpedoes, but this combo is too fancy to pass up.
